    Nothing.

    Everything. Rude staff. Disgusting room. Floor held together with duct tape. Bedding stained and not washed. Horrid smell. Unsafe atmosphere/unsavory guests.

    I liked the receptionist. And the room was very good for a hostel. It had proper beds and little extras.

    The shower seemed a bit cold.

    Atmosphere and good natured receptionist.

    Charging £70 for a bunk bed in a mixed dormitory with no access to toilet or bathroom on a floor of 40 people. I am sure this contravenes Health and Safety regulations.

    The quiet location away from the central.

    There was no breakfast left within the designated time (9.30am-10am) even though it was stipulated in the payment voucher that guests were entitled for free breakfast. The fact that reception was not 24 hours made ad-hoc enquiry to be difficult.

    Location

    No parking facility's, great if your back packing, if you need to park, there's an NCP half a mile away, I was told it was £5 a night,it's not its £5 for twelve hours & you have to be gone by 8am, so you must park at 8pm & leave the hostel at about 7.45, not worth it, stay in a B&B.

    Proximity to beach. wLAN worked well.

    This was by far the worst hostel on my UK trip! Showers didn't work, trash lying in the hallways, beds squeaking. If it had been very cheap, fair enough. But no, this was even more expensive than hostels in, e.g., Bath and Oxford. I was very disappointed!

    Nothing at all.

    The location is far from city center. Nothing in the room was prepared, no soap, no towel. How terrible it was? More than that when i got into the room, i was shocked because one woman was already in there. She planned to stay for 2 months so in the room was totally dirty, messy, and smelly with unwashed clothes and her stuff. The bin basket was over full, no room for me to hang my clothes or even put my stuff on. The bed was so bad, eveytime I moved my body, it made a noise. I stayed only one night and moved out early in the morning. When i arrived I informed that i would like to cancel for the next 2 days of my booking (for 4 nights) but the receptionist didn't agree and tried to say that I have to do it 2 days in advance. (Infact, i did). Anyway, i had to pay for the total amount. I left the refund form there. Staying only 1 night here was a nightmare and it was the worst time in my life!!

    It was absolutely disgusting! It took forever to check in, the room I was staying in with in such a horrible state.. The drain in the shower didn't drain properly with hair etc floating around in the water. Worst hostel I've ever stayed in!

    Other members of the staff were nicer.

    The first lady I met at the reception wasn't helpful or polite at all. The room was horribly dirty and it smelled horrible too. I found the place extremely dark and despite some kindness of some members of the staff, I wouldn't recommend this hostel.

    Booked a single room and got sole occupancy of a dorm. This was not made clear on the website and BYHs photos are misleading in this respect. Mattresses were thin and lumpy and I strongly suspected that the linen hadn't been laundered. Staff at breakfast grumpy. Don't stay here. Terrible and I have nothing positive to say.

    The tv was good

    The bed was horrible!! Springs sticking out, painful sleep, squeaky bunk bed so bad that if u breathed it would squeak!! People also live there which I didn't like. I thought I was staying at a Youth Hostel not a halfway house

    The staff, the breakfast, the location and the en suite bathroom.

    The beds - they were really uncomfortable and were so squeaky they woke up the whole dorm when you had to go to bed and get up in the morning. I did not have a comfortable sleep the whole time I stayed at BYH.

    Good size beds and nice on-suite bathroom. Pleasant staff.

    The breakfast wasn't very good. The cereal tasted stale and the milk was warm.

    Nothing. It was like a prison from the moment of arrival. Foreign, surly staff, probably underpaid, despite extortionate prices for dormitory accommodation.

    Being thrown out of my dorm and overcharged a further £5 for leaving late, This after paying £92 for two nights! Horrendous place and staff, patronising rude manner, totally unfriendly to the point of hostile. Shouldn't have a licence to be a hostel. Total rip-off.

    I liked leaving this hostel in the knowledge I would never ever return!

    Seriously! The worst place I have ever stayed. Everything was bad... no exaggeration!

    The position / Location was terrific. Near sea but not windy off seafront. The area was eclectic with a wide range of people about the place. Some backpackers, students and professionals as well as resident guest.

    The noise of people running up and down the stairs some early mornings but to be expected at a hostal.

    Toilets and bed room have a terrible smell. You should remember that you have to walk around 45 mins to central city. I do not think this house worth the price (nearly 18£) we have to pay.
